“It has been found that any architecture life on the planet - virus to vertebrates -Share the same underlying structure at the molecular level . This call tensegrity matrix , which forms an incredibly strong and flexible fabric continuous in all parts of the body. It is this matrix that makes it possible exploits such as mobility of the neck of a giraffe, the soaring flight of an eagle and the contortions of an acrobat .”
Inspired models Tom Flemons, artist and Canadian inventor, has used principles of tensegrity for 30 years to design portable structures , free fences , children's toys ( Skwish ), furniture, sculptures and mobile sculptures wind. He first noticed the formal similarity between tensegrity masts and vertebral columns in 1985 and built several models of a tensegridal spine. In the 90s, Dr. Stephen Levin, orthopedic surgeon, wrote about the connection, began working with Tom intending to devise structures that would help understanding the concept of Tensegrity in nature (14).
Fascinated by all these structures bornArtefactPro, materializing functionally similar to the behavior of different segments of the human body models; carefully preparing each of the designs.
We provide some biomechanical models that you can explain tensegrity , and its action in the body.
In this way, you can make more rigorous considerations and more easily reason concepts such as muscle chains.
I met tensegrity in 2007, at Myofascial Therapies School Tupimek in El Escorial (Madrid ), when Professor Andrzej Pilat introduced me in this physical and architectural concept , and the possibilities that exist to reason biomechanics from this framework. In addition with the help of the rest of the faculty of the school , it was extending the application to various body regions. Later , reading publications such as Donald E. Ingber or Anthony Pugh , were disturbing and began to unroll this project. Having completed leading to this continuous analysis and study of the different applications are endless to improve , understanding the scope of the tensegrity.
